opedrofunk is on a distinguished road
Hi All,

Happy to announce the release of blastFoam - a new solver for multi-component compressible flow with application to high explosive detonation, explosive safety and protective design. A user guide as well as multiple tutorial and validation cases are included.

The solver features:

blastFoam currently supports the following features:
  • An arbitrary number of phases/EOS's
  • JLW equation of state with constant, linear, and "Miller" afterburn models
  • Multiple example and tutorial cases
  • Automatic mesh refinement (AMR)
  • Single and multi-point detonation
  • High-order (1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th order in time; 2nd and 3rd order spatial)
  • HLLC, AUSM+, Kurganov, Tadmor flux schemes
  • Parallel
  • Compatible with all of OpenFOAM's standard mesh generation, pre- and post-processing utilities; enhanced version of setFields to refine around material boundaries when initialized

blastFoam includes the following equations of state:
  • Jones Wilkens Lee (JWL) (with afterburn)
  • Ideal Gas
  • Stiffened Gas
  • Cochran-Chan
  • Tait

Best regards,
Peter Vonk

Hi Peter,

I will add the "blastFoam" prefix to the Community forum.

Thanks for sharing.
Keep foaming,
